I Liked It!
Stalemate was a refreshing, angsty book that had me hooked from beginning to end! After reading Clickbait (Courtney and Carter’s) book, I was needing to read Emme and Axel’s book to see if they would ever figure things out so when Stalemate released I immediately jumped in and was not disappointed!
Emme and Alex have been “dating” for over six month but nothing has been solidified between these two. Axel wants more and has even proposed but Emme is happy with how things are. She has been hurt in the past and it has jaded her and her refusal to commit to more with Axel has put a kink in their relationship. What was working between these two is no longer working and this book dives into the problems these two encounter.
Watching these two go through all of these problems and how they dealt with it was heartbreaking at times. They didn’t always communicate well, and how they dealt with some things wasn’t always the best. Sometimes it pushed them further apart instead of bringing them closer together, but everything they went through helped them in the end. Watching these two sort through everything alone and together was rough at times, but it helped them both figure out what they both wanted. I enjoyed watching them figure out things on their own as well as Emme’s realization’s at the worst times at how she felt.
Not only seeing these two go through everything and watching them fall apart and come back together again, but seeing Courtney and Carter finally make it down the aisle made this entire book. For those of you who have read Clickbait this is the perfect book, if you haven’t read it, don’t worry you can read Stalemate without having read Clickbait previously, but trust me you’ll want to read that book one day, it’s a definite must read! Stalemate was an agsty read that kept me hooked and rooting for these two from beginning to end. I wanted Emme and Axel to work through their issues and realize that their HEA was already standing right in front of them, they just needed to let go of their apprehension and accept it. I highly suggest picking this book up today!
